Mumbai cruise drug bust case: A Mumbai court on Thursday sent Aryan Khan, son of Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan, and seven others in 14-day judicial custody in connection with the alleged seizure of banned drugs from a cruise ship off the Mumbai coast. Their bail applications will be heard on Friday (October 9).
The Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) had sought an extension of their NCB custody, but the request was not granted.
Aryan Khan, Munmun Dhamecha and Arbaaz Merchant were arrested by the NCB on October 3 in the Mumbai cruise drug bust case, while the other five were arrested the next day.
They were produced before Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate RM Nerlikar at the end of their earlier remand. The court sent them to judicial custody.
As per reports, Aryan Khan and seven other accused will be spending the night at the NCB office as jail requires compulsory RT-PCR reports and vaccine details before admitting the inmates.
